I think UVA fans will pull for him, but let's not pretend it's the same


connection we have with guys like Harris (program turnaround story), Brogdon (Elite 8, elite defender, 5 year player), or Hunter (special talent and champion). All three of those guys lead UVA teams to championships.

That's not to diminish Murphy in any way, or to ignore last season's regular season championship. It's just to say, his role wasn't terribly prolific, his time wasn't terribly long, and he didn't have the skills last year to take over games or to bring us post season glory.
